St. Nicholas Day

Saint Nicholas Saint Nicholas (15 March 270 – 6 December 343) also called Nikolaos of Myra, was a historic 4th-century Christian saint and Greek Bishop of Myra, in Asia Minor (modern-day Demre, Turkey). He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, a practice celebrated on his feast day and thus became the model for Santa Claus, whose modern name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas.

Yule Lads Nights

Stealing a Kiss

Dec 20
The Christmas Season

Dressing for the holidays can often include not only seasonal colours for clothing, but traditional decorations, including decking the halls, not only with boughs of holly, but often with the mistletoe herb, in the form of a "kissing-bough." Kissing under sprigs of mistletoe is a well-known holiday tradition, but this plant’s history as a symbolic herb dates back thousands of years. Many ancient cultures prized mistletoe for its healing properties.

Santa's Elves

Dec 23
The Christmas Season

In modern traditional folklore, a Christmas elf is a diminutive creature that lives with Santa Claus in the North Pole and acts as his helper. Christmas elves are often depicted as green or red clad with pointy ears and pointy hats. Santa's elves are often said to make the toys in Santa's workshop and take care of his reindeer, among other tasks.

The Yule Log

Dec 23
Yuletide Traditions

Yule or Yuletide ("Yule time") is a festival observed by the historical Germanic peoples, a period of feasting, drinking, and sacrifice. The traditions of the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar (Sonargöltr) are still reflected in the Christmas ham, Yule singing, and other traditions from the ancient Yule customs.

We Three Kings

Dec 24
Christmas Eve

The tartan is inspired by the spirit of Christmas. Colours: green represents Frankincense; red represents Myrrh and yellow represents gold, the colour of kingship. Gold, frankincense and myrrh are the gifts given to the Baby Jesus by the three Kings in the nativity story, each symbolic of Jesus' life and death.
